MEDFORD — The Santiam Christian High boys basketball team completed a three-game sweep at the Southern Oregon Subaru Christmas Classic on Saturday with an impressive 61-36 thrashing of 5A Ashland.

Ashland was coming off a 56-41 loss to Dayton in the semifinals. Santiam Christian would have played Dayton in the title game but the Eagles and Pirates didn’t play because they already meet twice during the West Valley League season.

Zach Baugher led the way with 24 points while Ben Galceran added 13. The Eagles (8-1) held Ashland scoreless in the second quarter to take a commanding 41-14 lead into the half.

SC is idle until opening West Valley League play at home against Amity on Jan. 3.
